Thanks for the advice - feathered sounds theoretically better but from my experience with defined shadows like that photo, does not work - then even I can see it on my monitor - like I said I have an "olde fashioned" CRT monitor - those are hard to beat - more modest/cheaper LCD monitors can cause problems, it's not the resolution that everyone looks at - but the gamut display and contrast - often what suits text does not suit photos - I know my friend's Mac monitor is premium - but it is way out of whack - however it is useful for me to check for problems like that photo -

Like I asked are there others that see what you saw? -
if it's the majority then I'd switch monitors -

This photo is a good case as the adjustment was quite extreme - like I said I cannot see it on my monitor.

Thanks for the input - very grateful for it.

EDIT to ADD - just saw this:


Thank you - that does it - I'll reprocess the photo and replace the photo posted -
would really appreciate if you can please comment on it to see if the processing is obvious.

Thanks.
I can see it clearly as well. I'm not using a MacBook though, so it has to be your monitor.

Thank you -
you mean earlier (before about 6pm EDT, Jul/27) when the problem was first noted -
or do you mean you can still see it now?

If so, would you mind please let me know the url of the photo?

Thanks

Cool! thank you.

It is obviously my olde CRT monitor -
which BTW does display photos really well -
BUT obviously cannot see the issues that we just had -
I'll post the culprit photo again here -

The shadowed part of the face would appear as if has a lightened mask on it -
it was from my post-processing - select area and brighten to show more detail -
but obviously I cannot see the the problem on my CRT monitor, that I think high contrast LCD screen can.

Just out of interest are there any with LCD monitors who do NOT see that problem even when highlighted please?

Thanks for the input on this - I am very grateful.

from last night:


ISO5000, f/4.5, 1/13; 68mm; -2/3 stop comp
light in center of stage virtually nothing else.......

Even stronger pic -

ISO5000, f/4, 1/60; 31mm; -2/3 stop comp
light colored shirt made all the difference - but this high contrast shot is just because there was only light in center of stage.......


ISO5000, f/4.5, 1/50, 73mm; -1 stop comp

No I haven't gone soft .... and shot only in the light.......

ISO5000, f/4, 1/13; 24mm; -2/3 stop comp
shot was underexposed probably due to the candles in the picture.....
but it turned out sharper than I had any right to expect.......


ISO5000, f/4.5, 1/10; 43mm; 0 stop comp
below main subject in silhouette due to the stronger light (night street) through the window - I deliberately left the out of balance bright part on the bottom right - that is reflection off the floor from the street lighting through the window......

I think those are pretty hardcore dark......

High ISO

I have no idea why I like this photo but for some reason I do. I was playing with the camera when my son walked by and I snapped this one. f/5.6 @ ISO 5100

K20D + Kit Lens 18-55 (x-posted)

Expanded ISO 6400 > JPEG > Faststone and Corel NR, relatively surprised by results, which could have been improved with a little more PP time but...

NICE! rawr -
good eye - good sense of composition -
it's such a good photo that it really would not have mattered even if it were "noisy"
- but the low noise of the K-x makes a real bonus.

Thanks!

But in looking at it again I should probably have cropped in by 5-10%, and shopped out that white pole in the middle of the roof. Maybe I'll do that if I ever print it out.
